Los Angeles vs San Francisco Dodgers Aim to Bury The Giants

Los Angeles vs San Francisco Dodgers Aim to Bury The Giants

Dodgers look to win the NL West on enemy turf

After struggling against San Francisco early in the season, the Giants once held a 9-2 season series advantage, Los Angeles has won the last four games against San Francisco. To quote the late great Yogi Berra, it’s like déjà vu all over again as Los Angeles clinched the NL West by beating the Giants on September 24, 2014, albeit at Dodger Stadium last season. Clayton Kershaw did the job a year ago, Zack Greinke gets an opportunity to do the same tonight. Greinke missed his last start due to a calf strain but he’s been lights out all season as he is 18-3 with a 1.65 ERA and an amazing 0.85 WHIP.

San Francisco won’t be defending their 2014 World Series Championship

Defending a title is never easy - in any sport. With a long 162 game grind, plus the fact that limited teams advance to the playoffs, back-to-back World Series titles are few and far between. The Giants know all about that as they will fail to defend a MLB Championship for the third time in five years. After making a strong push coming out of the All-Star break, the Giants closed July on a 10-3 run and were within 1.5 games of the Dodgers, San Francisco is just 23-28 over their last 51 games and they are six games out in the NL West. RHP Jake Peavy (7-6 ERA 3.83) heads to the hill for the Giants.

Giants vs Dodgers MLB Prediction: While clinching the NL West is inevitable, Los Angles would clearly like to care of business tonight. The Dodgers are chasing New York in the race for homefield advantage in the NLDS as they trail the Mets by 1.5 games. Trusting that Greinke won’t feel any ill-effects from his calf strain, and will win his eighth straight start versus the Giants, we are loading up on the Dodgers with a 1000 unit wager on the money line price posted on the Bovada MLB betting board.

Bovada Bookmaker Honors Tainted Super Bowl Prop

When it comes to Super Bowl prop wagers, Bovada is taking the high road, even though bettor Yuri Andrade took the low road. Andrade was the fellow who ran on the field in the midst of Super Bowl 55. It turned out that he'd wagered $50,000 on a Bovada Super Bowl prop on whether someone would run on the field during the game. Even though the outcome was tainted, Bovada is honoring these wagers.
